Mandatory Metallica Returns to SiriusXM

Apr 29, 2020

Mandatory Metallica - our one-and-only, limited-run SiriusXM channel - is coming back to SiriusXM this Friday, May 1st at 9am ET, and it's mandatory listening!

Don't miss this audio celebration filled with songs, rarities, and career-spanning concert recordings, as well as commentary from each of us. The channel will also embark on a 30-date "virtual Metallica tour," which will air a past concert from around the globe every day, including our exclusive SiriusXM concert in 2013 at the Apollo Theater in New York City and our 2016 concert in New York City's Webster Hall. An exclusive at-home DJ session, Welcome Home, from Lars will also be featured. And we’ll be taking over SiriusXM's Liquid Metal channel each Monday in May for Metallica Mondays. Mandatory Metallica will be available on the SiriusXM app in the “Rock” category.

To make sure as many people as possible can tune in, SiriusXM's unprecedented Stream Free access offer has been extended through May 30th. Stream Free gives easy access to SiriusXM's full lineup of Premier Streaming content to any listener in North America by downloading the SiriusXM app or go to siriusxm.us/MandatoryMetallica.

SiriusXM has collaborated with a number of artists to create curated audio experiences for listeners everywhere. The collection of music channels launching on Friday, May 1st also includes David Bowie, the Eagles, Fleetwood Mac, George Strait, Guns N' Roses, Led Zeppelin, Prince, and the Rolling Stones. Tune in... when you’re not watching Metallica Mondays, of course!

Available in the US and Canada.
